Felix Y. In his teenage years, Manalo became dissatisfied with Catholic theology.

In , he joined the Methodist Episcopal Church ,  entered the Methodist seminary, and became a pastor for a while. Manalo left Adventistism in and associated himself with atheist , and agnostic peers.
On November , Manalo secluded himself with religious literature and unused notebooks in a friend's house in Pasay , instructing everyone in the house not to disturb him. He emerged from seclusion three days later with his new-found doctrines. He left the congregation in the care of his first ordained minister and returned to his native Taguig to evangelise; there, he was ridiculed and stoned at his meetings with locals.
He was later able to baptize a few converts, including some of his persecutors. He later registered his new-found religion as the Iglesia Ni Cristo English : Church of Christ ; Spanish : Iglesia de Cristo on July 27, , at the Bureau of Commerce as a corporation sole , with himself as the first executive minister.

United States, and the Philippine Arena. According to the resolution passed by the Senate of the Philippines to commemorate INC's th anniversary, INC has already established more than 7, congregations in countries and territories throughout the world. Iglesia Ni Cristo believes that it is the true church established by Jesus Christ in the first century, and that its registration in the Philippines is the fulfillment of biblical prophecies that Christ's church would re-emerge in the Far East.
It is the sole basis of all their beliefs and practices. INC rejects the traditional Christian belief in the Trinity as heresy,   adopting a version of unitarianism. They believe that this position is attested by Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Christ and the Apostles are united in teaching how many and who is the real God. The Apostles also did not teach that there is one God who has three personas who are also Gods.
It [Trinity] is not found in the Holy Scriptures or the Bible, and if [Catholic] priests ever use the Bible to prove this teaching of theirs, all are based only on suppositions and presumptions. The church believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God  and the mediator between God the Father and humanity,  and was created by God the Father.
God sanctified him to be without sin , and bestowed upon him the titles "Lord" and " Son of God ". The church sees Jesus as God's highest creation, believe that he is a Man and denies the deity of Jesus.
He is believed to have been "foreordained before the foundation of the world" and sent by God "to deal with sin". Members "are saved by Christ's blood " who died because of his "self-sacrificing love". The Iglesia Ni Cristo believes that it is the one true church founded by Jesus Christ  and was restored by Felix Manalo in the last days. They believe that the first century church apostasized in that century,  or in the 4th century due to false teachings.
Meanwhile, its reestablishment is seen as the signal for the end of days. They believe that the Iglesia Ni Cristo is the fulfillment of the Bible verse, Isaiah , where "east" refers to the Philippines where the Church of Christ would be founded.
The two passages often cited by INC to support this are Romans "Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you",  and the George Lamsa translation of Acts : "Take heed therefore Manalo is said to be the restorer of the church of Christ, and "God's last messenger" Sugo in Tagalog.
This is the start of the period according to INC being referred to in the Bible as the ends of the earth cf Is ; the time when the end of the world is near, even at the doors cf.
Manalo is also portrayed as the fulfillment of several passages in Isaiah and other books of the Bible. As the one who sent by God to restore INC, Manalo became the first executive minister and spiritual leader of the church. The church believes that baptism is done by immersion baptism or Believer's baptism by adults in water, and that it is necessary that people be baptised in the Iglesia Ni Cristo to become disciples of Jesus Christ.

People who wish to be baptized in the INC must first submit to a formal process taking at least six months. Once someone officially registers with their local congregation, the person is given the status of being a Bible student Tagalog: dinudoktrinahan and taught the lessons concerning fundamental teachings and its beginnings in the Philippines. This book is given to ministers, evangelical workers, and ministerial students of the INC.
Each lesson is usually thirty minutes to one hour in length. After hearing all the lessons, the students enters a probationary period Tagalog: sinusubok during which they are obliged to attend fifteen once-a-week group prayer meetings, where they are taught to pray and are guided in their adjustment to the INC lifestyle. When the sixth month comes, students who have been active in attending the twice-a-week worship services and whose lifestyles are in accordance with INC doctrines are screened before being baptized.
During the screening, they are asked questions about the teachings of the church. Members who are not living in accordance with the doctrines taught in the INC are admonished. Those who continue in violation of INC doctrines after being admonished are excommunicated or expelled from the INC and thus lose salvation , and therefore, the church does not believe in the perseverance of the saints. Certain violations, such as eating blood, [a] being absent from worship services too long without any solid reason, drinking alcohol , or marrying or having a romantic relationship with a non-member may result in mandatory excommunication.
INC believes that a person is composed of a body "vehicle" , soul "individual" and spirit "life" or fuel. Upon Christ's return, all dead servants of God, from the time of the patriarchs up to the last days, would be resurrected to join living faithful and loyal INC members. The church believes that God set a day where He will judge all people. They believe that this day is also the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. INC divides time into three eras: the era of the Patriarchs from creation to the birth of Moses , the era of the Prophets from the birth of Moses to the birth of Jesus , and the Christian era from the birth of Jesus to the Last Judgment.
The church conducts regular worship services, one during the week, and one during the weekend, conducted in the local languages providing sign language interpreters and translators in some congregations.

When the two decided to be formally in relationship, they should inform their respective household leaders and for the community to know. Since the CFC community is a Catholic group, Catholics are most welcome but we accept non-Catholics who wanted to know more about the Catholic Church and our community. The Catholic Church forbids "flirting" but they are allowed to exchange emails and numbers maintaining that holy desire to be chaste partners until marriage.
